According to our bylaws (1), we have three different types of membership:
- Regular Members: people under 30 years old (people under 18 do not have voting privileges when it comes to issues of legality)
- Adult Members: people over 30 years old
- Organizational Members: an organization, non-profit or business that conducts business in Yellowknife
In order to be a member, you have to sign up online! Adult members are asked to make a donation of $25 in exchange for their membership, however no person is turned away for lack of a donation.
Organizational Members are asked to make a donation of $250, however if the entity is a non-profit organization, we ask for a donation of $100. In order to be an organizational member, an entity must have LGBTQ+ inclusive policies in place, or be undergoing the process to develop LGBTQ+ inclusive policies.
